sides stand right now. boehner's new plan would raise $2.2 trillion. now it would extend the bush tax cuts for everyone and yes that does include the top 2%. and it would instead raise $800 billion in revenue from so-called tax reform and that's what we mean when we talk about capping deductions and closing loopholes. the rest of the money comes from cuts to both mandatory and discretionary programs. now to recap again on the president's offer, he wants to raise $1.6 trillion, that's double boehner's amount on the rich an and he's asking for more than $200 billion in stimulus spending and promising about $400 billion worth of cuts to social programs. now obviously those two plans have very little in common. neither side is budging when it comes to their demands on taxes. but now here are a few problems with boehner's proposal. for one, he has yet to get specific on which deductions and loopholes he actually plans to get rid of. for another, he's trying to borrow from the simpson bowles agenda of raising revenue

john boehner sens the proposal what do you think? >> it is a great opening start makes sarid tangible what the speaker committed to it after the election to the revenue on the table not how much or what way with that is inner misstep by the republicans not something we want to do but what we have to do. the speaker's proposal directs us to real problems that is what drives the debt and you cannot pussyfoot to warsaw office revenue but to have fundamental reform. we like the right and budget this the cure picked up elements of first gambles and i think again in the effort to try to reach across. he needs to get effort to for what will be an active discussion. >> does have violate the pledges to violate taxes? >> it of thing so. keeping tax rates with a hour is the question. you can increase revenue by a more independent system getting away from loopholes. that is something that paul ryan is a leading advocate. i think it is a smart and good proposal if i was pleased to see their pay republican setting off the justice name hopefully the white house knows that means unity. >>host: here i

to the speaker today, speaker boehner. let the house vote. if they voted overwhelmingly, mr. president, one republican suggested, one republican house member that more than half of the republicans in the house would vote for giving the tax security to people who make less than $250,000 a year. so i say let's have speaker boehner call upon the republicans in the house to add 25 or so votes to what the democrats would do, and you'd have 218 votes and we could go on to taking care of the fiscal cliff. mr. president, my friend protests too much. the senate is broken and needs to be fixed and we need to change the rules. we change them all the time. last year we changed the rules. why? because, mr. president, what they were doing -- republicans -- just to stop and slow down everything, after two cloture votes -- remember that takes a long time to file two cloture petitions, a couple of days and then 30 hours. two cloture votes, 60 hours. you would think the debate was all over. oh, no, what they decided they were going to do is suspend the rules and have more votes. we put up with it for awhile.

. >> how speaker john boehner said right now, we are nowhere in terms of the fiscal cliff negotiation. as the president agree with that assessment? >> no, he doesn't. i think aesop secretary geithner over the weekend. another sunday shows. fairly clearly expressing the president's position to talk about the proposal that the president has pafford and express our belief that there has been progress in that we can achieve a bipartisan agreement. the obstacle remains, at this point, the refusal to acknowledge by republican leaders that there is no deal that achieve the kind of balance necessary without raising on the top 2% of americans, and we look forward to the presentation by republican leaders and their id ideas for spending cuts come as you know. as you know, secretary geithner has pafford a proposal that includes $600 billion in detailed spending cuts in health care and other entitlement programs, and that comes on top of over a trillion dollars in spending cuts as part of the budget control act. and it is contending with our proposals for how to achieve the kinds of revenue from

class of america. prominent republicans are calling on speaker boehner to end the suspense for man milliof these american families. yesterday republican congressman tom cole of oklahoma, a veteran in the house of representatives, urged his caucus to pass the senate's legislation keeping taxes low for those making less than $250,000 a year. mr. president, that would pass by an overwhelming margin --. all the speak has to do is let it come up for a vote. i would bet a lot of his republicans would vote for t i would bet a majority of his republicans would vote for it. virtually every democrat would vote for it. they only need 218. there's 485 members in the house. and we also noted yesterday that republican congressman tim scott of south carolina, who is noted for his conservatism, admitted yesterday that if the speaker brought our bill to a vote, it would surely pass. so it's time for house republican leadership -- it's time they listened to the will of the american people -- independents, democrats, and republicans. and also the advice of reasonable members of their own caucus. the

boehner took a position the day after the campaign that those who are willing to, but not increase rates. that explains why we don't think that works. born in insisting on rates just out of spite or out of any kind of partisan victory. but rather because we need to raise a certain amount of revenue. now we've seen some movement over the last several days among some republicans. i think there's a recognition that may be they can expect some rate increases as long as it's serious entitlement reform and conditional spending cuts. if we can get the leadership on the republican side to take that framework, to his knowledge that reality, then then i'm yours actually aren't that far apart. another way of readiness as we can probably solve this in about a week. it is not that tough. but we made that conceptual breakthrough that says we need to do a balanced plan. that's what's best for the economy. that's what the american people voted for and that's ever going to get it done. one last point, most are taking questions. there have been reports and these are not necessarily confirmed. maybe some o
